A maure woman's take on the First Amendment

We tripped across a January 2010 blog post from then Jeff Dunham's soon to be ex wife. (It appears Mr. Dunham divorced his wife. From her blog post, it may be that she committed adultery. (Reference to her "mistakes.") Although it appears Mr. Dunham wasn't so pure either.)

According to her post, there were some things said on the Internet that some judges in Arizona might consider "harassment." (Or as cheating judge Mary Hamm said, "Dangerous." For exercising the First Amendment.)

So it's refreshing to read a mature woman's words about being "attacked" publicly on the Internet. Quoting excerpts from her post [with out bloggers comments in brackets]:
The blog was a discussion on my pending divorce. While I admit it is strange to see your life being discussed that way, I accepted that parts of my life could become public when I married someone in this industry. [As when you divorce your husband and your court records are public.] Although uncomfortable, for the most part what was said in the blog was true. [Same with with blog.] I'm not proud of my mistakes, but I own them and really only Jeff and I know the complete truth. Also, I truly love this country and the generations of men and women who have fought and died to create and sustain it. (I PROUDLY brag that I have a family member who has fought in EVERY major war to form and protect America and the freedoms we have). Since one of the very principles this country was founded on is Freedom of Speech, I must accept that people are free do discuss my mistakes.
You go, girl! If only more so-called Americans had the same mindset as you!  Not everyone does.

She continues:
However, while men and women fight and die everyday to protect our freedom, it really isn't always ours. My soon to be ex-husband didn't like what was being said, so he used his connections to have the blog removed. It seems he is only comfortable with freedom of speech and expression as long as HE is making others talk.
Boy, can our blogger testify to this last part. He says that Melody Thomas-Morgan used her connections (Dan Murray, a Prescott police "officer" (no longer POST certified), Mr. Thomas Lloyd, a Prescott City Prosecutor, and Judge Kenton Jones to abuse our blogger by getting an unconstitutional injunction against harassment against him.. She is only comfortable with freedom of speech as long as SHE is the one talking.
